Owl lamp makeover

I was not going to spend $10.00 on this lamp. I walked away from it several times but could not leave it there all alone and sad. My husband actually stepped in (probably because I looked pretty crazy hovering over this thing trying to decide if it was worth it, and freaking out anytime someone came near it ) he politely said "Listen you will be mad if you leave it here .. so just pick it up and pay for it already!!" So I did.. who am I to argue with the man!!
Here she is before-sad little orange eyes begging me to make her pretty ...

A can of grey spray paint later and here she is..

I snagged a lamp shade at Lowes for $5.00 . I am going to look for some white and yellow damask fabric to recover the lamp shade.

What do you think? Was it worth the $10.00? I have to admit I kinda love it !!

Some master bedroom updates

I struggle with this room... I can't seem to get it right. I think I am finally headed in the right direction though...

I repainted the yellow cedar chest that I posted about here.. do you want to know the sad part... ok I am going to tell you. It started out white - I should have just left it alone. But what fun would that be ? I repainted the headboard also.. it used to be black. I got the sunburst mirror from family dollar for $10.00. It was gold but nothing some silver spray paint wont fix.

I also remade this pillow cover - original here

My husband and I built these cute little night stand.. maybe someday we will get to building the other one. I am also debating painting this white.. is that too much white?

I got this dresser from the D.I for $15.00 - is was such a score. What a surprise I painted it white!! The frames above the dresser hold printables from Sprik Space and eighteen 25
